Very interesting! That is certainly new news to me.

I always wondered why the footage of staging was so clear versus the first live footage from the moon which was very grainy and "ghostly". Now I know.

The full version of the footage of staging actually includes the cameras being ejected, they wind down due to have no electricity to power them.
